When electro-rock sensation Lights first hit the music scene in 2008, she brought to the stage merely her simple songs and a synthesizer. That one-woman show was enough to earn her a best new artist Juno award and make her album, “The Listening,” go gold. For her latest release, the experimental “Siberia,” Lights began collaborating with artists such as the electronic outfit Holy Fuck and rapper Shad, and further developed her sound. Songs such as the dance-pop infused “Toes” and the romantic “Cactus in the Valley” already make “Siberia” a must-have for dance-pop and dust-up fans. Lights perform at the Canal Club on Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. $13-$15. 643-2582.
